About the property

Upscale, Immaculate Ocean View House, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths en suite (Sleeps 14)


Luxurious Ocean View 5BR/5.5BA Immaculate House W/Pvt Heated Pool Steps to Beach. Now accepting Summer 2018 weekly bookings, along with Spring and Fall reservations (3-night minimum.) Try the HEATED POOL option in both Raspberry Kiss and Raspberry Bliss for your off-season rentals only $150 for the week or $75 for 3-days booking - Pool heating available for spring, fall, and winter only!

Just lowered prices!!

To help offset the fees that are now being charges outside the rental cost of the property - we have lowered the rental cost for Raspberry to where the rental cost, the cleaning fee, the taxes, and the new fee being charged all total what you would have paid in full, last year to rent Raspberry. Yes, we are taking a hit since utilities, insurance, maintenance, etc all have gone up, but we want to be fair in our pricing and with the advent of the new fee, it creates a higher cost that now makes folks reluctant to rent. We want to help counter by offering this reduction to help renters with the cost. We hope this reduced fee helps and we hope to hear from you! The Service Fee goes directly to VRBO. The owners have nothing to do with this fee.

Optional fees

Linens - $250 full package/ partial $ varies

Pool heat (Spring and Fall) $150 wk/$75 3 days

Why Kathryn Marlow - Owner/Manager chose Garden City

Location, location, location!!!! We love the convenience and the location of Garden City Beach. It's near all the fun and activities in the Myrtle Beach area, but without the stifling crowd. The beach is wide, and the sand is soft, perfect for family fun - only 200 feet from the waters edge.

What makes this house unique

Our property is special because of its location, right behind second row, less than 75 steps to the beach. There is a direct beach access right at the end of the street, which makes this house so very convenient. We enjoy the beautiful ocean view on our balcony while having coffee in the morning or cocktails at sunset. Now, you can enjoy the (optional) pool heat in the off-season!

We spent a lot of time and consideration choosing beautiful furniture and art work to create an upscale, luxurious, yet welcoming home, for our guests to enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family gathered at your beautiful home for a fall vacation and had a wonderful time. We loved the location, so close to the beach and the great ocean view from the front balconies.

We were all so impressed by the fully-stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture, and the lovely way the house is decorated.

Thank you for providing such a fantastic place for us to spend with each other. (Comments left in the house guest book.)

Perfect Choice

  • 5 of 5

Our time at Raspberry Kiss felt as if we were in our own home, with a feeling of being away from home! We had extended family - Children, Grandchildren, and even my 4 month-old Great Grandchild! Everything we needed was available. The furnishings were excellent quality. I was amazed (and delighted) that it was so sound-proof. One of the young folks even had a rather loud argument, and no one on the other side was aware that it had happened! It is close to entertainment! It is close to the ocean. The pool is well-maintained. And we even were greeted with a

gift, which just told us that we were appreciated. Loved every minute of it! Even the argument!!!

I have been coming to Garden City for about 20 years. Rented big houses and small houses, on the ocean and off the ocean.

The views from Coral Mist are the most amazing I have even seen anywhere no less Myrtle Beach!!!

The house is perfect we came down with 2 families with 4 kids under the age of 7. They played in the pool, ocean, and the loved the kids rooms. It has everything for kids and adults. It's by far the best house I have ever rented down in Myrtle Beach!!!

Raspberry Kiss Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at the Raspberry Kiss. The house was more than we expected. Just to receive a bottle of wine and and a gift card to Krispy Kreme was really unexpected but well appreciated. The house was well decorated and very cozy. I can't wait until next year!

Summer 2016

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a mini family vacation / reunion with some cousins at Coral Mist. House was a great location and perfect layout for adults and young teenagers. The pool was great and the additional upstairs living area was perfect for the kids. Every bedroom having their own private bath was a big perk. Kitchen stocked with any needed cookware and utensils also helps a traveling family. House was very clean and well decorated. Great pool and the beach being literally across the street, what's not to like. Owners are very responsive and want their guests to have a great experience. Would rent again.
